Hello to everyone,
Well I sure hope everyone back home is doing well. Things here are going pretty well. We have been working really hard out here and things have been progressing slowly. Not to much has changed with Makayla. We did finally get to meet her mom but only briefly. I have really been praying specifically for the Lord to soften her heart, so hopefully things will begin to to progress quicker with her. The other girl we are teaching, Alyssa, She is doing a lot better we have been able to have quite a few lessons with her and she is finally praying. Hopefully she will begin to see the importance of prayer and the difference it makes in her life. We got to meet with Helen again, she we really happy to see us. We were able to teach her a bit about the restoration and about the Book of Mormon. She said she would love to read it and discuss it with us a bit. The only problem there is that she can't really set a firm appointment ever because, her husband has really bad health issues so she never knows when she might have to run him somewhere. Other than those three the work has been kinda slow. It gets really frustrating sometimes because we are working so hard and not really seeing that much success. We are trying to get the ward a little more involved in the work so I'm hoping that will begin to help.<-------I just found that emoticon and thought it was really cool so enjoy......
Anyways so it sounds like things are going pretty well back home. The girls trip sounded like it was pretty fun. I am just really glad I didnt have to be in that car with you all. That sounded pretty insane. It was good to hear from Rob sent me an email telling me a little about what is going on with him so that is great. Hopefully things keep progressing well for them. How is staci's morning sickness? make sure and let me know how the doctors appointment goes.So how is Derek doing now? any new news from him. That is awesome that Tevan is enjoying the MTC. It can be such a great place, it just takes a bit of getting used to. Anyways I am so glad that you are all doing so well.
I was able to talk to both Renton and the Adams family. It was awesome that they were both able to make contact with you. Renton is awesome he loves going out with us and helping us do our work. Plus he is Katelyns age, so Kate think about it maybe even friend him on facebook he is pretty cool. The Adams family also showed me the text that Lindsay sent to them so that it pretty great. So there is a lady here that wants the recipe for monkey bread and Roll up pancakes so mom if you could send those to me that would be awesome. Thanks so much.
Well i love you all very much and I hope you all have a great week.
Love Elder Payne
